A world in turmoil desperation endless wars

forever on nuclear alert

where a continuously rising population

live on the edge of disaster

fed information the elite want us to hear

the truth never made clear!


Conflicts are perpetual few ever resolved

countless humans slaughtered

to keep the wealth for wars flowing in

no thought for the misery

or destruction of these nations generations

with endless peace delegations!


No limit on money spent for deadly weapons

yet to help the masses there is none

populations outgrowing all natural resources

animal species no longer exist

their land needed for profitable items to grow

most extinct the rest on death row!


Constant threats of world nuclear annihilation

as yet buttons not pressed

but so many nasty devices could do the job

maybe a pulse beam or microwaves

a complete computer shutdown or starvation

could equally bring our obliteration!


As we get through another day is our history

true or just fabrication

conspiracy theories could well contain truth

proving we are manipulated

th believe material gain is the only objective

the elite view us in a dark perspective!


Enjoy the moments of freedom and joy

before our leaders all of us destroy!

    That sounds like a terrible world! No animals?! Starvation?!!
    All because of greed?!
    Is this really what the world’s coming to?
